Light & Shadow

”Both light and shadow are the dance of love.” – Rumi

It is always the combination of light and shadow that makes the subject come alive. Sometimes it is the angle of the light that gives the mood of the the shot.

Like this below…same tree… but photos were taken from opposite sides giving one a bright photo while the other has a shadow effect.

There are many ways to tackle the theme this week so I have decided to go just one way, since it doesn’t take much to confuse me … I have put up light shining on the objects or people creating some interesting shadows.

“All the beauty of life is made up of light and shadow.” – Leo Tolstoy

Those are my shadows in both of these photos.

Even if the sun is nowhere to be seen, there are shadows especially seen on wet pavings.

  4. Ohh, I love the art piece but even more the one from above. <3 I also like both photos of four people shadows and I think the first (dry) one would make a great album cover.
